The Seth Gordon-directed film also features Zac Efron and Alexandria Daddario and is based on the hugely popular 1990s television series featuring David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson. Priyanka earlier revealed that she won’t be wearing the iconic red swimsuit worn by Pamela Anderson and others on the TV show. “I’m not a lifeguard, I’m the interruption in their slow motion,” she told NDTV in an interview.
